I made these to go with this pumpkin-butternut squash soup. They would also be perfect for a tomato or french onion soup. Or just on salad. Feel free to mix up the seasonings depending on what you are using them for. I kept it simple here for this soup, but would definitely add different herbs and spices for different soups.
What you need:
5 cups of cubed bread- each piece should be about a 3/4 inch cube (I used three largish sandwich rolls)
2-3 tablespoons butter, melted (if you want them to be richer, add a bit more butter)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
garlic powder, salt, pepper (I used 1-2 teaspoons of EACH)
Heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Place bread cubes in a large bowl. Mix the butter, olive oil, red wine vinegar and seasonings in a bowl. Drizzle over the bread and toss to coat evenly. Spread onto a large baking sheet. Bake for about 5 minutes, mix them around with a spatula, and return to oven. Do this again a couple more times, or until there is no more moisture left and they are golden brown. Enjoy!
